Alone
I love this song and always wanted to play it for my girlfriend.  I found the
lyrics and chords and put it together.  Enjoy
Pretty easy to play not so easy to sing.

Bee Gees,  Alone

Intro:  D      Gmaj9     D
               

D
I was a midnight rider on a cloud of smoke
D
I could make a woman hang on every single stroke
Gmaj9
I was an iron man, I had a master plan
D
But I was alone
D
I could hear you breathing, With a sigh of the wind
D
I remember how your body started trembling
Gmaj9
Oh, what a night it's been, And for the state I'm in
D
I'm still alone


BRIDGE 1


Bm7     Em7
And all the wonders made for the Earth
        A       Em7
And all the hearts in all creation
        D
Somehow I always end up alone (Always end up alone)
Gmaj9
Always end up alone


CHORUS


D                                 Bm7
So I play, (Sha? la) I?ll wait (I?ll wait)
        Em7
'Cause you know that love takes time (Livin love between the lines)
D                                 Bm7
We came, (Sha? la) so far (so far)
Em7
Just the beat of a lonely heart
F#m7    G
And it's mine
        D              D      Gmaj9     D
And I don't want to be alone


VERSE


D
Well, since I got no message on your answer phone
D
Since you're busy every minute. I just stay at home
Gmaj9
I make believe you care, I feel you everywhere
D
But I'm still alone
D
I'm on a wheel of fortune with a twist of fate
D
'Cause I know it isn't heaven, is it love or hate
Gmaj9
Am I the subject of the pain, Am I the stranger in the rain
D
I am alone


BRIDGE 2


Bm7                           Em7
And if the glory there to behold
   A                Bm7
Maybe it's my imagination
               Em7
Another story there to be told? oow


CHORUS


D                   Bm7
So I play, (Sha? la)  I'll wait (At times)
        Em7
And I pray it's not too late??? (Tears that you cry)
D                   Bm7
We came (Sha? la)   so far  (so far)
Em7
Just the beat of a lonely heart
F#m7    G
And it's mine         (pause)
        D              D      Gmaj9     D
And I don't want to be alone


BRIDGE 3


Bm7     Em7
And all the wonders made for the Earth
        A       Em7
And all the hearts in all creation
               Em7
Another story there to be told? oow


CHORUS


D                                 Bm7
So I play, (Sha? la) I?ll wait (I?ll wait)
        Em7
And I pray it's not too late (Livin love between the lines)
D                   Bm7
We came (Sha? la)   so far  (so far)
Em7
Just the beat of a lonely heart
F#m7    G
And it's mine
        D              
And I don't want to be alone


CODA

D
Gone, but not out of sight
D
I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home
D
Gonna Face the heat of the night
D
The one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone

D
Shine and search for the light
D
And sooner or later you'll be cruising on your o-cean

D
And clean out of sight
D
I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home

About the artist behind Alone:

The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb — that became one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England and moved to Brisbane, Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to England and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers' did. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony"[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees' record sales total more than 220 million, easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".[2]
